KT Therapy provides speech, feeding, and myofunctional therapy services to infants and children.
Evaluations consist of understanding the family's concerns and goals for their child, an in-depth health history, observations, as well as informal and formal assessments. The therapist will review initial findings and recommendations with the family. A typed formal evaluation report will be provided containing a treatment plan. A copy of the evaluation report can be shared with other members of the child's team (primary care physician, dentist, etc.).
Therapy sessions are individualized to meet the needs of each child. Research has found play to be most effective when children are learning new skills. Sessions are typically child-led so therapy is fun, engaging, and meaningful. Parent involvement is encouraged. Parent education and home programming are provided during each therapy session.
The goal of speech therapy is to improve your child's speech and language skills in order for them to become effective communicators. We specialize in the following areas:
Speech Sound Disorders

Transitioning to solids
Orofacial myofunctional disorders are often underlying causes to speech and feeding difficulties. Signs and symptoms include low resting tongue posture, mouth breathing, drooling, extended pacifier use or thumb sucking, tongue thrust, sleep issues, teeth grinding, dental abnormalities, and tethered oral tissues. Myofunctional therapy works to improve oral and facial muscle function with the goal of proper oral resting posture, nasal breathing, correct placement of speech articulators, and optimal skills for the oral phase of swallowing.
